Challenging lay out nice greens beautiful fairways
Forest Akers West
I had a great time and the staff was friendly. The course is well-kept and presents a fairly moderate challenge. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone looking for a fun round!
Great course to play prior to a home Spartan Football game
Had a blast playing this course Fair layout, greens were in great shape and staff was friendly and helpful. Great pro shop and snack bar. Will definitely book again.
Fun, challenging course
Great course, excellent greens. Always fun to play.
Played West Course first time, fairways are in good condition, greens were quick rolled true to your line, staff was extremely helpful in making this 1st timer feel like a home course experience.
I live in Ga work in Lansing. As I was walking down what in my opinion the most beautiful fairway I've ever played on, it occurred to me. Holy smokes, bent grass fairways!! In Ga we can't keep or Bent Grass greens due to the heat and here it all was, beautiful bent grass everywhere! The greens, wonderful. The pace, heck, our threesome couldn't play fast enough to keep up with the 4 some in front of us and the twosome behind us couldn't keep up with us. From the 5 hour round I experience at my own club in Ga, sub 4 hour round was like finding a new animal species! The West course has it's own Android GPS at with free download. So, even another bonus. Wonderful. I can't add a 5th star just in case I get o play Pebble Beach someday.
It's About Time
Great challenging course with excellent fairways. Greens were soft and easy to attack. Here in Michigan from Georgia and can't wait to play this course again!
Gorgeous, hilly course
Forest Akers West is a gorgeous, hilly course. No hole layout at the tees, but a small map on the scorecard.
West is the course that sells alcohol during play from a cart (via the University Club). No alcohol sales at the clubhouse.
It's About Time
One of the best courses that I have had the chance to play since moving to Michigan about a year ago! Awesome staff and course! Can't wait to play again this week!!
Great course, bad cust svc at times
